Chattanooga Symphony & Opera's Big Band Fever returns Valentine's weekend for big-band music with swing dancing on the stage at the Tivoli Theatre.
Two concerts are scheduled to accommodate the number of guests who annually attend this popular show: Friday-Saturday, Feb. 14-15, at 7:30 p.m.
Take your valentine to hear live swing music by the CSO Big Band conducted by Principal Pops Conductor Bob Bernhardt.
Valerie Duke, a Chattanooga native and former Glenn Miller Orchestra performer, will be the featured vocalist. She will sing numbers by legendary artists such as Sarah Vaughan and Cole Porter.
Guests may enjoy the concert from their seats or dance the night away on one of two dance floors. Kyle Barels of Dance Tonight Chattanooga will provide ticketholders with a free dance lesson at 6:45 p.m. prior to each performance.
"Big Band Fever is one of our most popular concerts each year," says Samantha Teter, CSO executive director. "With the ability to dance onstage, we see a wide array of ages from teens to seniors. It's just a night of fun, upbeat, nostalgic music."
Tickets begin at $21. They may be purchased by calling the CSO Box Office at 423-267-8583 or online at http://chattanoogasymphony.org/
